like the call, but melo very happy that he picked up that one because jim boeheim was getting ready to read him the old riot act, why he passed it, but look downtown. waiters going deep. nice answer by him. >> ian: fourth foul by russ smith. the foul given. that's it. just over a minute to play. syracuse up by 13 with two free throws coming. the orange in the double bonus and rick pitino coaching up russ smith but also giving him a piece of his mind on that last sequence. eight points, 0-6 from three-point range for smith. the tournament profile for syracuse. they will move to 30-1. 17-1 in the big east. and the only loss coming at
6:01pm
notre dame. irk i'm not sure, ian, if jim boeheim would sleep in a little yesterday. it's hard to believe when you're 30-1 that you're not playing as well as you should be, but i think the last few games of the regular season is what really primes the pump for the tournament. they could go to new york and lose and really not affect their approach to the ncaa. nice focus right here. >> ian: standing ovation. senior kris joseph. his final game here at the carrier dome. scoop jardine remains in there. joseph wraps it up. 58-44.
6:02pm
triche will pick up the personal foul. and this is a nice gesture. brandon reese, a senior, will check in, replacing scoop jardine. five years as a part of this syracuse program, and jardine has really become a fan favorite here in central new york, and there is a nice opportunity. smith lines up a three. short. down to 40 seconds left. , i don't know where louisville will fit in for the ncaa tournament, where their seed will be. it's a big mission try right now where the committee views louisville the way they've played down the stretch of the regular season. >> ian: a four-second give remember scial, shot clock to
6:03pm
game clock. reese against siva. reese makes his move. kicked out. southerland couldn't grab it. kuric comes the other way. christmas. it's good and a foul on melo. >> jim: fab melo upset for not letting him go by and score the bucket. >> jim: nice little bounce pass and, you're right, lay back, but the instincts are to go after it. it may not matter right now, flu are times you have to make better decisions. but you're right about louisville, ian, when you think about it. they've lost four of their last six counting this one right here. obviously struggling going in the wrong direction coming down the stretch. >> ian: final seconds here at the carrier dome. reese denied by dieng. they're not going to give him a senior swan song that easily.
6:04pm
2.8 on the clock. >> jim: here it goes, hire it goes. >> ian: a three. no good. >> jim: this dome would have come down. >> ian: an impressive capper on the best regular season in syracuse basketball history. the orange 58, louisville 49. syracuse 30-1 this season. tonight on cbs begins with "csi: new york" and then "csi" and "48 hours mystery." so long from syracuse, 58-49, the orange over the cardinals. this has been a presentation of cbs sports. on the road to the final four. o. where were you? uh, i was just in the car. oh, the car. what's that on your collar? hmm? oh -- tie. [ chuckles ] [ chuckles ] why do you seem happy? i'm not. come here. okay. [ inhales deeply ] mint. wow. i had a shamrock shake. i hate you.
6:05pm
and i got one for you, too. i love you. [ male announcer ] the magical, minty flavor you'll covet with all your heart. mccafé shamrock shake from mcdonald's. the simple joy of... mint. ♪ no, i wouldn't use that single miles credit card. hey, aren't you... shhh. i'm researching a role. today's special... the capital one venture card. you earn double miles on every purchase. impressive. chalk is a lost medium. if you're not earning double miles... you're settling for half. was that really necessary? [ male announcer ] get the venture card at capitalone.com and earn double miles on every purchase every day. what's in your wallet? cover for me. i have an audition. you still gotta work. so suddenly you're cutting back on everything from family vacations to cell phone minutes. well here's a thought - how bout cuttin' back - on gas? here's how: the ford f-150. it gets 23 highway miles per gallon. that's the best.
6:06pm
so you can get the job done and get a break at the pump. yeah, how's that sound? this is the future. this is the ford f-150. >> woman: don't forget the yard work! >> o.k. >> announcer: with citibank's popmoney, dan can easily send money by email right from his citibank account. >> nice job, ben. >> announcer: well played, dan. well played. citibank popmoney. easier banking. standard at citibank.

it was a big bad roar that come through. it come right straight down to the ground and all the debris was just going in circles. >> there's a search for survivors after a violent wave of storms flattens communities across the midwest and south. le hello, everyone, i'm bruce johnson. emergency crews are combing through devastated homes and neighborhoods, searching for tornado survivors and bodies tonight. at least 38 people are dead, hundreds more are injured, including a baby girl found alone in a field 10 miles from her home. susan mcguiness begins our coverage in the small town of henryville, indiana where residents are trying to recover. reporter: wayne jones is sifting through what's left of his henryville, indiana home. >> up here in the tree is the
6:09pm
brains of the mobile home. reporter: a tornado demolished this town, sending a school bus into a building, dropping a tractor-trailer on a gas station and sheering the walls off of homes. terry kirk went to inspect the convenience store where she used to work. >> i don't see any possible way anybody could have survived in this. reporter: the tornado that came through henryville moved with such force it blew the back wall off of the high school gym here. devastation like this stretches across the midwest and south. a shot from the air shows the storm's path through kentucky. in the town of west liberty, the national guard joined state police searching for survivors. residents who got out alive aren't allowed to go home yet. >> the area has been declared as martial law and we're asking everybody to stay out. as you can see, it's a very dangerous area. reporter: in ohio, a twister tore up the town of moscow. and at least one person died in alabama where the first storms started friday morning. back in henryville, wayne jones is trying to stay positive.
6:10pm
>> i have insurance that covers everything. i'll just pay everything off and start over. reporter: jones will have to start with finding a new place to live. susan mcbegin es, cbs news, henryville, indiana. a small town in kentucky got clobbered by one of the tornadoes. search and rescue teams, including the national guard are now going door to door. jim spillman reports on that difficult search. reporter: this is west liberty, kentucky, hit hard by friday night's tornadoes. this is the mobile command center they've set up here. this town is on lockdown now as they focus on search and rescue. this is why they need the command center, this until last night, friday night, was the police department. this right here is a police car that was flipped on its side. you can just see here this destruction as this tornado tore through here. it was friday night right around dusk, around 7:00 when this tornado came through. some buildings like this one completely leveled and you can just see piles of bricks. you can see here this spray paint here from agencies that
6:11pm
have been searching, establishing that there's nobody trapped in here. that's really the focus right now is search and rescue here. and it's painstaking work to have to go from building to building and dig through all the crevices and voids. the state police here tell us with communications down, cell phone towers down, very hard to establish cell phone connections or any kind of internet connections. it's hard to know exactly who still may be stuck here. they have to do these house-by- house, building-by building searches. some houses are better. over here on the other side of the street, you'll see the courthouse. this was sort of town center right here on main street. it's just really devastating that this tornado went right through the heart of this small town here in kentucky, really the worst possible path for such a destructive storm. >> right now let's go to annie in the weather center.
6:12pm
annie, we understand friday tornado outbreak could have been a record. >> yeah, bruce, especially for the ohio and tennessee valleys. let's take a look at the potential that this could have been the most tornadoes we've seen as far as a tornado outbreak. now, the current record stands at 74 tornadoes. that was back on march 11th through the 13th in 2006. now, as of this morning with the latest outbreak, we've had 95 reports of tornadoes from 10 states from mississippi all the way stretching to ohio. now, tornado reports are expected to go down as they'll be consolidated after damage surveys are done. now, here is a look at the midwest where you see some of the areas and the doppler radar here where things are much quieter. a dip in the jet stream is actually bringing in some cooler air into parts of the midwest. in fact, the ohio valley could also see some snow. but we're looking at no severe weather for those areas impacted by those deadly tornadoes. so cleanup should be able to continue without any major problems. we'll talk about our forecast
6:13pm
and the chance for some snow coming into our area a little bit later. bruce, back to you. >> annie, thanks a lot. right now let's go back to henryville, indiana, where susan mcguiness is standing by live. she says a massive search is under way right now. susan, what can you tell us? reporter: hi, bruce. search and rescue is still under way, we've seen a lot of folks here from the military, from the police and search and rescue, fire people with dogs, fanning out around this area. they have these postage stamp areas that they need to search and they are very, very optimistic, there have been some really unfortunate, several people have ended up dead, many injured, but they are very optimistic they have found all the injuries and deaths they are going to find. they have not found anything in many hours. that is the deal so far with search and rescue. but, bruce, you would not believe what some of the damage here looks like. you can see behind me this bus that was thrown into the middle of a restaurant. that is the force of this tornado. i mean, you can imagine some of the damage. it's really quite amazing there
6:14pm
were not more injuries. >> absolutely. susan mcguiness reporting live for us from henryville, indiana. susan, thanks a lot for that report. we're going to take a break and come right back. stay with us.
6:15pm
